This might be a great idea for our wonderful electric company LIPA. Come up with a secret proprietary way for calculating electric usage. The meters could be set to run on battery power so they are always spinning, even in a blackout! Plus they could multiply usage by a secret number, "e" perhaps, to up the usage.
Sounds like AT&T is making a good case for the government to step in and regulate their meters under the same weights and measures rules that apply to scales, gasoline and gas and electric meters.
I support the right to keep and arm bears.
